I earned my Ph.D. from the Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology (PNP) Program, which is housed in the Philosophy Department at Washington University in St. Louis. While in the PNP Program, I was a member of the Reading and Language Laboratory. I received my B.A. in Philosophy and Psychology from Hendrix College.

That's a picture of my brain, taken by Corey Maley - a fellow philosophy professor and my husband (although he wasn't either at the time). 

When I am not doing philosophy, I enjoy vegetable gardening, college basketball, reading mystery novels, and spending time with my family.
